OMG, I am so sorry Snail!
DNS is much more than a key->value datastore.

I am very sad. :cry:
His contribution to the Namecoin project was unique.

Could we put a remembrance message for him in the Namecoin blockchain in special namespace ?
It should remain in the blockchain forever.
(For Aaron Schwarz may be we could also create a namespace entry which should be renewed each year.)

I support this idea, but not sure if it makes sense to do this with a name. (Since everyone can register a name to put stuff into the blockchain, so this wouldn't really emphasise anything.) Maybe a coinbase transaction of some block (like lots of people did with Bitcoin)? We would need a mining pool to do that, though.
